Polygiene® Antimicrobial Finish Featured In Patagonia Apparel

Ventura, Calif.-based outdoor apparel retailer Patagonia Inc. has selected Sweden-based Polygiene AB's Polygiene® antimicrobial fabric finish for use in its Fall 2013 Capilene® base layers and trail running base layers.

Polygiene technology is based on silver salt derived from recycled silver and offers permanent odor control. The bluesign®-approved treatment can be applied at any stage of production to a variety of textiles and surfaces, and can reduce the need for frequent laundering, Polygiene reports.

"Patagonia will not sacrifice performance yet we strive to minimize our environmental impact," said Todd Copeland, Environmental Product Specialist, Patagonia. "Effective, long-lasting odor control extends the useful life of our Capilene® Performance Baselayers. Polygiene meets our strictest laboratory requirements and performs excellent[ly] in field use. As Patagonia scrutinized odor control technology against all environmental concerns, bluesign® approval and recycled silver were key attributes that led us to select Polygiene."
